 The Department has taken the following actions on previously received permit applications, requests for Environmental Assessment approval and requests for Water Quality Certification under section 401 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) (33 U.S.C.A. § 1341).

 Except as otherwise noted, the Department has granted 401 Water Quality Certification certifying that the construction and operation described will comply with sections 301—303, 306 and 307 of the FWPCA (33 U.S.C.A. §§ 1311—1313, 1316 and 1317) and that the construction will not violate applicable Federal and State water quality standards.

 Persons aggrieved by an action may appeal that action to the Environmental Hearing Board (Board) under section 4 of the Environmental Hearing Board Act and 2 Pa.C.S. §§ 501—508 and 701—704. The appeal should be sent to the Environmental Hearing Board, Second Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, PO Box 8457, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8457, (717) 787-3483.

 Pursuant to the Environmental Hearing Board's (''EHB's'') March 3, 2015 Order issued at EHB Docket No. 2014-028-L, the Department of Environmental Protection (''Department'') is republishing notice of the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (''NPDES'') Individual Permit #PAI-0321-11-013 (''NPDES Permit'') for the discharge of stormwater associated with construction activities. Pursuant to the EHB's order, the approved NPDES Permit is suspended until further notice from the Department to allow the public adequate opportunity to comment on the suspended NPDES permit.

 The Department received a permit application submitted by Mr. Lewis Martin for this NPDES Permit for discharge of stormwater associated with construction activities. Mr. Martin proposed to disturb 8.24 acres for the purpose of constructing two poultry houses at his property located at 489 Big Spring Rd., in West Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. The facility is located within the Big Spring Creek watershed. Big Spring Creek is a special protection water of the Commonwealth and has an existing use of High-Quality Cold Water Fishes and Migratory Fishes under Title 25 of the Pa. Code, Chapter 93. The permit application's Erosion and Sediment Control Plan and Post-Construction Stormwater Management Plan provide proposed effluent limitations.

 For this NPDES Permit, the application and the suspended NPDES Permit are currently available for review and comment. These materials contain tentative determinations of narrative effluent limitations of proposed effluent limitations and other terms and conditions for the permit application. In accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 92a.32(d), the frequency, volume, quality, and rate of the proposed discharge of stormwater associated with construction activities will be managed in accordance with the requirements of 25 Pa. Code Chapter 102, which prescribes best management practice requirements that constitute the narrative effluent limitations for management of the stormwater runoff at the construction site. These determinations are republished as proposed actions for public review and comment prior to the Department taking a final action.

 The United States Environmental Protection Agency has waived the right to review or object to this proposed NPDES permit action under the waiver provision in 40 CFR 123.24(d).

 Persons wishing to comment on this NPDES Permit application and the suspended NPDES Permit are invited to submit comments to the Department within 30 days from the date of this public notice. With regard to the requirements of 25 Pa. Code § 92a.82(b) and the Environmental Hearing Board's opinion, the Department shall receive comments on the suspended NPDES Permit in the same manner it would a draft permit. Written comments should be addressed to the Regional Program Manager, Waterways and Wetlands Program, 909 Elmerton Ave., Harrisburg, PA 17110. Comments received within this comment period will be considered in the final determination regarding the application. A comment submittal should include the name, address and telephone number of the writer and a concise statement to inform the Department of the exact basis of a comment and the relevant facts upon which such comment is based. After consideration of any written comments received, the Department will either revoke, revise or reissue the suspended NPDES Permit and publish notice of the Department's final action with respect to this NPDES Permit in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

 The Department will also accept requests for public hearing on this suspended NPDES permit. A public hearing may be held if the responsible office considers the public response significant. If a hearing is scheduled, a notice of the hearing will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin and a newspaper of general circulation within the relevant geographical area. If a hearing is scheduled, the Department will postpone its final determination until after a public hearing is held.
